Pakistani choppers shelling localities have been spotted in different areas of Bolan as the operation in the region enters the second day.

Scores of civilians have been taken away by Pakistani security forces so far during the offensive, whereas, three people were killed yesterday.

According to local TBP correspondents, Pakistani military operation, that started early in the morning on Thursday, has been further intensified on Friday. Military raids have been carried out in different areas of Bolan and Harnai.

Locals have spotted multiple military choppers shelling different localities in Margat, Buzgar, Chalari, Saro, Sangaan, Harnai, Shahrag, Yakho, Laaki, Lakar and Gharbuk.

According to local sources, Pakistani security forces have completely sealed the area resulting in extreme difficulties for locals to travel. This has also resulted in accurate information not coming out of the area.

Yesterday, scores of peole had been abducted and at least three were killed during the operation.

The identity of those killed in the attack is yet to be ascertained.

On Friday, there were also reports of clashes between armed persons and Pakistani forces. However, this is yet to be verified through independent sources.
